If you hadn't thought of heading down to The End on Elliston Place to savor some coffee-seared beef carpaccio with vanilla-roasted beets well, neither had we. But chef Michael King is taking an evening off from the Wild Iris to offer End-goers some inventive hors d'ouvre alongside music from two innovative local bands. Storm Kings will lay down some progressive jazz-funk grooves the group brings together four veterans of the screw-getting-famous-we-just-like-to-play circuit. Also on the bill is the improvised electropsychbeatrock of Hyrkamonsta, a project led by Peter Hyrka when he's not playing violin with the Gypsy Hombres. King's gourmet goodies are included in the $5 cover.
